    Yeah. This should be its own thread. NBC actually aired about 45 min coverage of men's TT today. I was impressed. AFAIK, they did not cover women's in any real way. It's seems like NBC coverage gets worse and worse every 2/4 years.All you white kids look alike when you're still covered in baby fat, so I was getting bored with the non-stop WASP parade.

    I did enjoy all of the Britons decked out in their Wiggo-chop-burns. Truth be told I was paying more attention at the beginning of the men's TT and was glazed-over by the time the big names were on the road as I'd just sat through a lot of the women's TT and the kid was getting into this, that, and everything else she shouldn't. Lack of commentary on the app-stream also made it all a bit of a blur.

    Kinda saddened Longo didn't make the French team for the TT. I like her. Maybe my favorite part of all of it was the Russian TT lady who looked a little like "yes, yes, you've already filmed me, can't you tell I'm a little shy?" as they kept coming back to her again and again.

    Track racing starts tomorrow I think.

    I watched the women's road race on NBC; Marianne Vos was amazing, as per usual.

    Sadly I was not the first person to make a connection between the Swedish TT helmets and Star Wars, Bike Radar beat me to it...

    Guessing from what I know of Aki Kaurismaki and Christiania, I'd imagine there are a lot of wacky Scandinavians hiding behind their orderly facades.

    NBC coverage has been horrid, been watching it on the BBC's livestream. Million times better.

    I'm pretty sure the French women who did make the French team for the TT are pretty glad they didn't lose a spot to a woman caught up in a doping scandal after she dominated the sport for decades.

    I missed that. But then, I didn't know you inject EPO until I read the piece about the Gran Fondo doper last night (although my wife pointed out that it's also... uh... done by emulsion? That's might only be for legitimate medical use though). I can't say I do any kind of legit racing anyway, so I don't know if I get as up in arms about PEDs as actual racers.

    Jimmy, you may want to check out Lifehacker, there are some instructions there on how to use some service (usually $5 per month but you can get a week's trial) to get the BBC/British Eurosport stream in the US. Seemed overly complicated to me so I've been putting up with the commentaryless NBC app.

    PS: can I haz some non-injectable PEDs to get me through D2R2?

    I would make a lousy diabetic.

    ^^cheers cheez.
    got my commcast login from my house mat eso i can log into nbc's website.
    managed to watch most of it with no commentary.

    a bit of drama without over the top commentary is kind of surreal. a lot of people looking concerned running around talking to officials and then all of a sudden the screen would show "GB, relegated"



    usually i can get everything on first row sports . e u

    but not the cycling this morning.
